A320

FSElite Original: Visiting AlphaTech (A320 Fixed-Base Sim)

Visiting Alpha Tech Fselite

Having worked extensively on the A320 family for many years in the past, it holds a very special place in my heart. Up until I worked on them, I was always a Boeing boy. However, my heart changed after getting to know the ins and outs of this European-designed aircraft. We are fortunate that after so long, we finally have a range of options to enjoy the A320 in our home simulators. Of course, all these years of learning meant I was soon ready to try a more immersive experience.

This trip has been in the making since December 2017. Paul emailed me asking if I’d be keen to come along and visit his fixed-base A320 simulator in Belfast. “Yes, when, where, how much?” I think was my immediate response (although probably a bit less excitable). I got a reply and everything was planned for February 2018. Counting down the days, I invited my friend along and everything was shaping up to be an exciting day.

Update: FSLabs A320-X and A319-X Receives An Update (V2.0.1.266)

Vc4

Update: Turns out that FSLabs also updated the A319-X. We’ve posted the change log down below also.

The FSLabs A320-X and 319-X has just received an update for P3D v4.2 and v4.3. The changelog for this new update can be found here.

This update includes an abundance of fixes, as well as performance and scenery improvements. Some of these fixes come in the ways of fixing the FSL Configurator issues upon a fresh Windows install. Multiple external model and VC cosmetic issues.

The team have found that the issue of the “banding” or “horizontal line” in the VC is a problem within P3D itself. The LM team have in fact found a workaround fix until a permanent fix is available. The workaround fix can be found here. One of the issues fixed in this update with the doors requires you to have the latest version of GSX installed.

The latest version of the A320-X  or A319-X can be found on FSLabs’ re-downloads page.
